Make a Statement in a Bright, Bold, and Beautiful Coat this Winter

The Look

Up until recently, you would never catch me in a pair of leggings or sweats in public. Unless I was going to or from the gym. I thought they were a lazy excuse to not button your pants. I hated them. Now, they are everywhere. The lines of casual and fashionable have almost become non-existent. There is no more dress code. I have begun to adopt this style of dressing in my everyday wardrobe, but as a partial adopter, I am still finding balance. The balance of being a fashion-forward dresser who wants the look of casually bold, yet comfortably beautiful.

How To Wear It

For this How To Wear It, I embraced the idea of effortless style by creating a look that is casually bold yet, comfortably beautiful. My streetwear style look uses athletic-inspired elements while relying on bold accessories to make it truly standout. In this look, I am wearing a reversible coat from the H&M x Kenzo collaboration, an incredibly soft, crop sweater from locally made Chicago brand Wulfka, black joggers by Zara, and my biggest obsession this season, white boots by Steve Madden. I added gunmetal and silver jewelry to add and an even edgier vibe. Because this look has individual pieces that you can wear individually and are neutral in color, it is one that can be easily adjusted. Eliminate the books and add your favorite canvas sneakers, and hoop earrings for a more relaxed look. Swap out the coat as the season’s transition, for a long duster style jacket. The styling options are truly endless.
